An all-new tale of the Caped Crusader from animation icon Bruce Timm is coming home as Batman and Harley Quinn, the latest DC Universe Original Movie from Warner Bros. Animation and DC Ent., arrives on Digital on August 15, and on August 29 on a variety of disc options from Ultra HD to Blu-ray and standard DVD and more.
The latest challenge to the Dark Knight’s skills emerges as Poison Ivy (voiced by Paget Brewster) and Jason Woodrue, a.k.a. The Floronic Man (Kevin Michael Richardson) hatch a plan to save the planet — which necessitates the elimination of much of humanity. To save the species, Batman (reprised by Kevin Conroy) and Nightwing (Loren Lester) enlist Ivy’s BFF and frequent partner-in-crime, Harley Quinn (Melissa Rauch). Batman’s patience is put to the test by unpredictable, untrustworthy Harley along the winding route of their road trip to save the human race.
Batman and Harley Quinn is directed by Sam Liu (Batman: The Killing Joke) from an original story by Bruce Timm (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) with teleplay by Timm and Jim Krieg (Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox). Alan Burnett co-produces, with Sam Register, Timm, Benjamin Melniker and Michael Uslan as executive producers.
